Ray & Michele Call

Dawn and I will be connecting with a number of ministries over the next week and a half while we are in the San Diego – Tijuana area (June 3-14). We will meet Ray and Michelle Call, our new team members. Ray and I have met, but Dawn and Michelle haven’t met yet. We are looking forward to getting to know them, and ministering side by side with them as we crank up the Chula Vista BEAMM (Border Evangelism and Mercy Ministry) team. Ray and Michele just moved from Mexicali to Bonita, CA near Chula Vista. We appreciate your prayers for them as they make this transition. The Calls have six children so this move is no walk in the park.

Stephen & Bradford Phelan

We will hook up with with Stephen and Bradford Phelan. Stephen leads the Harbor Mid-City church. This is a great, young bi-lingual church that is making an impact in the city. Stephen pastors the English church, and Edgardo Avila pastors the Spanish speaking church. Later in the week we will also be able to interact with Dick Kauffman and Russ Kapusinski from the Harbor Network about partnering together on the border to see Hispanics reached for Christ.

On Sunday, June 12 we will be at New Life Church in La Mesa. New Life is a key partner church with BEAMM. We are interested in how we can maximize our partnership with them. Pray with us that the Lord opens doors, and lead us as we work together.

Dave with Daniel Nunez

We will also have the opportunity on this trip to connect with Daniel Nunez, who has planted 12 churches in six years. We are excited about exploring ways we can partner with Daniel. I was able to go to Tijuana in March, and see his ministry, “Lo Mejor del Trigo,” first hand. They are reaching out into the community, and feed up to 700 children breakfast at their various church sites. The Lord is using them in significant ways.

We will meet with churches and individuals on this trip to build our ministry support team. We are at about 78% – 80% of our monthly need. We are getting to the home stretch. Pray with us that the Lord will bring in this final 20%.

On the home front, David has decided to go to San Diego Christian College. Thank you for praying for us about this need. We are still working out all the details, but we are excited about this choice, and glad to have him near us. We appreciate continued prayer for Jonathan and Hannah as we try to decide with them about schooling options. Also, pray the kids do well while we are gone.

In His Grip, Dave
